Use the Search box located at the top right corner of your screen to quickly find image material scattered across our many Virtual Archives products. The Search tool looks for caption lines and note areas that contain the search term you've entered.
The Results page displays thumbnail views of all digitized content (historical photographs, documentary art, maps, documents, etc.) available on our website for your search term. Mouse over the thumbnails for brief text descriptions, or click on them to go directly to the full-size image within its specific exhibit.
Each Virtual Archives product presented on the Nova Scotia Archives’ website also has its own Search Box, located in the middle of the landing page and repeated at the bottom of each display page. Use this tool to search for items within a particular exhibit.
Need more results? The Search box in the top right corner looks for digitized content only and does not full-text search our website.
